Want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in Madison and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across New Jersey, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new friend is at St Huberts Animal Welfare Center Madison, where Wolfie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like George, a Pug up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
